DAY SEVENTEEN - Tongue to John O'Groats

If all things go well, this will be it the final day of LEJOG.  We cycle north to the coast and then follow it east until our feet get wet.  We cover 105km with 1,110m of ascent.

The route can be downloaded from here.

Monday 25th July accommodation suggestions in John O'Groats:

  • Will have & Jon & have booked into Puffin Cottage in John O'Groats through Booking.com.  There are plenty more small hotels and B&Bs in the surrounding area.

Keep costs down by getting twin rooms and sharing.

Getting there and back again

If you are joining us for the day, the nearest train station to the starting point is .. well there isn't one.

I rather expect most people will spend the night in John O'Groats otherwise the nearest station is Thurso.


If you have any questions regarding equipment etc email Will.Allaway@Outdoorlads.com.

A lot of useful information is included in Day 0 - Getting to Lands End.
